Ok so I figured this is the only way I'm going to remember things about my life... so I'll post a few things.
We're having a little boy, for those who didn't already know. He' officially due on July 12th, but will most likely come early. Why? Because my Dr. is awesome and doesn't want me to have another 9 1/2 pound baby. Since Ansleigh's shoulder got stuck coming out, it's safe to assume that another big baby will have problems coming out, and we don't want that! I really love my Dr. She's also the family doc and listens to EVERYTHING you have to say. Love her. Her name is Dr. Sarah Durney. She grew up in Basin, and she's only a couple years older than me. Yes, that fact does make me feel like I've wasted my life away... I have yet to get my associates degree... but it also makes her super easy to talk to, and she understands pregnancy, as she's had a child of her own!
Let's see... today Brensyn had to have some work done on his top front teeth, and his lip is fat and numb. He hates it so badly that he cried for half an hour straight (yes, a joy) and on and off since. I can't get too upset with him, because I remember doing the same thing. I'd almost rather suffer through the pain than have to deal with my mouth being numb. Poor kid!
Jaran's finally getting busy again... and I do mean busy. He works six days a week, and usually for about 12 hours a day. By choice. He's got one job going right now, and another one the middle of May. He might even have a third starting sometime in July. I told him I was going to force him to take some time off when the baby comes. Minimum three days, if not more. It's going to be a long summer trying to keep the kids occupied while not being able to move, bend, handle being outside for more than two minutes at a time. If there ever was a time for a nanny... now is the time! Ha ha ha!
McKie is going to be eight in a month, and he's getting baptized the last Sunday of May. Is it shocking to anyone else that he's already this old? It's scary!!! There will be eight years between he and the baby. Crazy times! He's really getting into reading scriptures at night, and I'm thankful that he is... cause this isn't the first time we've tried to read. We have done it several times before, and it ended up being more horrible than good. It's been about two months since we started, and we're still going strong!
Ansleigh is enjoying her mommy and me time, since I haven't been doing school this semester. I think she gets bored sometimes, though, when I can't move around much. I feel like a beached whale already, and I still have almost three months left! AHH! She passed her Kindergarten screening with flying colors, and I think she'll be ready and excited when the time comes.
I'm super excited that my bro-in-law Zak gets off his mission in three weeks! It's going to be great to see him and give him a great big hug! He's been serving in Louisiana, and he's been doing amazing work out there. He's been district leader for quite a while now, and he's a great example to the boys.
Well, I don't know what else to talk about. Just felt like I needed to write something for some reason. Take Care!
